When I came across the bottom of an old Hoosier cabinet by the dumpster one day, I just had to stop and pick it up! At the time, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but eventually decided it would make a great outdoor kitchen island! I reattached the porcelain top and painted it using Annie Sloan's Primer Red. I added hooks for grilling tools and a hand towel. The cabinet is now a great place to store charcoal, lighter fluid and grilling tools. Plus, it really adds more to our patio, which happens to be one of our favorite places to be!
A Texas Fall Mantle
With Fall not arriving in Texas until November, it is a little hard to get into the Fall mood! Here I decorated our mantle for Fall... Texas style... while outside it was a brisk.... 85 degrees!
